“You’ve got to love pressured moments. That’s what makes you great,” McCarron told reporters. “That’s when the great ones really shine. I guess Tom Brady was in this same situation when he had the opportunity, so I’ve got to make the most of it.”
Brady became Brady in 2001, leading the New England Patriots to a championship, after Drew Bledsoe was injured.
Like Brady then, McCarron is a second-year player and he says he’s ready.
“If you lose confidence,” McCarron said, “it can go bad for you real quick.”
